Awesome!!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a month at Perdido Key. Everything about our stay was perfect. The condo was exactly like the pictures and had everything and more! We are already hoping to return next year maybe for even longer. We would highly recommend this place if you are planning a vacation to this area. It's quiet but close enough to everything. Bill was awesome to work with and we had no issues. It was perfect! The beach was beautiful and you could walk for miles! Jeff and Juli from Michigan

Keep coming back

  • 5 of 5

Shipwatch is our favorite place to stay. I consider Bill the owner a friend even though we've never met FTF. He's responsible, attentive to our needs and a joy to work with. His unit is perfectly placed on the beach in beautiful Perdido Key and we always look forward to spending some winter days there. We just returned and already booked for next year.

Great location!

  • 4 of 5

This unit is on the first floor and very convenient for loading and unloading. The patio was so nice with a beautiful breeze and very relaxing. Bill was great to work with. Matthew (housekeeper) even left us a note with his phone number in the event we needed anything. You won't be disappointed.

Perfect beach get away

  • 5 of 5

A group of four retired teachers had a magnificent stay in Perdido Key at this lovely condo. The kitchen was well equipped and all the decorating and furnishings were updated. Comfortable and clean spaces throughout. There were lots of beach items available to use on the warm white sanded beach outside our door. Perfect location, very reasonable. Management of the property was also helpful and responsive to any requests we had.

My Kind of Place

  • 5 of 5

This condo was exactly as advertised and more! Everything in the reviews were true. This place has everything you would need for a beach trip. We usually load down our Honda Pilot and add a cargo carrier to our tow hitch for all the things we usually bring (beach chairs, umbrella, beach cart, toys, etc). This time we trusted the reviews and just came with our 3 boys, my mother-in-law, and some swimsuits. That's all we needed. The kitchen has any size pots, pans, and utensils you would need. Everything in the kitchen was clean. The fridge even had an ice and filtered water dispenser which was great to have. When we arrived, I was worried I would not be able to watch the Georgia football game since it was on the SEC Network. Luckily this place had cable tv with this channel in the line up. Didn't miss any football all week. The things we like/used the most were the Weber grill, ice maker, the beach wagon, chairs, and umbrella. Grilling with a beach view was great. There are also 2 park style charcoal grills right out front with a picnic table too. Both look like they were just installed recently. Having an ice maker will be one of my requirements when renting going forward. Not having to make ice runs everyday is nice (tho there is a Tom Thumb gas station right across the street if you need anything and dont want to go far). Bill Crews was great to deal with from the moment we submitted to rent. He was very responsive and easy to deal with. We will be back.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the review Chinda! Glad you enjoyed the beach supplies. I have to agree about having 2 ice makers, one in the freezer and one under the counter does tend to keep the demand to go get extra ice down!! Thanks for staying with us.

Our stay was perfect. weather was great.

  • 5 of 5

The condo was just what we had thought. We were so blessed. Ground floor was a real treat. We especially liked that it is so close to everything that we wanted to do. It will definitely be somewhere we will want to rent again. Great vacation was had by all. We would give a special shout out for the presence of an ice maker. Real treat in hot weather.

Owner's Response: We are so glad a great vacation was had by all! Thank you for commenting on the under the counter ice maker, it's definitely a plus having access two icemakers, one in the fridge and one under the counter.
